to see. it's only arab allies. or as candidate romney says, evidently without looking at a map, iran's only outlet to the sea. this reflects how it is american elite's, not those sitting in tehran here in denial about basic political trends in the middle east, let alone basic geography. by the islamic republic does not believe that serious bashar al-assad will be overthrown by syrians, the key point is that even a post a sovereign government would not be pro-american or pro-israel. and it may even be less seen on keeping the order with israel quiet. and unless a post assad government were taliban like, serious foreign policy will be just fine for the islamic republic. even more significantly, americans have a hard time coming to terms with the fact that today iran's most important arab ally is not syria. it's iraq, the first shia arab led state in history is iraq, but we never mention that. the united states cannot come to terms with the fact today that for the first time america and one of america's key regional pillars, egypt, is in place strategically. you doesn't mean they have t
's governor romney becomes president, we're going to have romneycare or we're going to have obamacare, because we need to solve this problem, and we need to solve it immediately. it's a collaborative effort between private, public, state can and local -- state and local government and the federal government. >> moderator: senator hatch? hatch: well, the so-called affordable care act is anything but affordable. 85% of the american people had affordable health insurance and were getting along quite fine. so we've discombobulated the whole country with all kinds of regulations, all kinds of federal intrusions. frankly, we as the state of did better by ourselves. we didn't need the federal government to tell us what to do or how to do it. and, frankly, we have one of the best health care systems right here in utah. we were one of the first states outside of massachusetts themself to have an exchange. now, our exchange would not be acceptable to obamacare, but i've got to tell you this, obamacare's going to lead us down to destruction. there's no way that that isn't going to eat us alive, there's n
if he wants to get deficit reduction out of raising taxes. president romney will go in the opposite direction. now, how do i feel about that? when i was mayor of new york city, i had a city that had a deficit of about $3 billion. we had 10.5% unemployment. we had 1.1 million people on welfare. we were coming to a -- what was described, one of the reasons i got elected. i got elected because the economy was horrible, had 2,000 murders in the two years before i ran for mayor so i got elected at the first republican in 25 years, first one to remain a republican in 50. [laughter] i got legislated with a very, very simple and direct campaign slogan. you can't do any worse. [laughter] tell me how i could make things worse? 3,000 murders? could unemployment go do 15%. maybe instead of 500,000 people moving out, 600,000 move out. give me a shot and let's see what can happen. my predecessor had done what a lot of people who should never be executives do. he appointed a commission to tell them how to straighten out of economy, but the commission was going to report after the election. the com
that the democratic campaign hasn't pushed that romney is saying that he will improve the keystone pipeline on his first day in office. this is the dirtiest form of petroleum. its seemed to have a pipeline from alberta to texas. we are not getting this country off of our addiction to oil. it causes cancer and other diseases. we are given an election between two candidates that are both bragging they are going to continue exploring for oil offshore in the gulf and that is absolute treason against posterity. >> host: bill clinton and former president was in minnesota yesterday campaigning for the president. here's what he had to say on the store and climate change. >> was in closely to the candidate said in the debates. in the first debate, the triumph of the moderate mitt romney. you know what he did? he ridiculed the president. ridiculed the president for his effort to fight global warming in an economically beneficial way. he said you are going to turn back the sea. if we could have done that mr. de. all up and down the east coast there are mayors many of them republican who are being told you've

governor romney should release his returns class let's start with mr. schneider. schneider: everything that voters want to know about my financial position, what i is have learned and owned and our kids savings accounts are included on a report i filed with the house. that it's been reported in the papers as well. what i said is my wife has her own career. she is a professional and she has employees who work for her and she has competitors. she is not running for congress. my wife has a right to a certain degree of privacy and everything you want to know about my finances are on the report. >> moderator: they are entitled to transparency as a candidate. dold: let me say i've released my returns. my wife is on there as well and i think the voters to have a right to transparency here and frankly the fact that we don't know what was paid in those taxes and we don't don't know what deductions were taken we don't know if taxes were paid on domestic employees. we don't know any of those types of things on these return
romney's getting these now, the nominees of the party are offered intelligence briefings by career cia people. but they're more, they're analytical, what we used to call pee and glean briefings which is one of the many euphemisms from cia days. i'm trying to approach them in my memory because i can't get ahead. but their analytical. they're not operational, they're not given a lot of specific details about agents and agent operations that only, that only happens once the election takes place. once, you know, if it's in the case of a new president, um, obviously if president obama's reelected, then this will not happen. but that's when they get the review of all the ongoing covert action programs. that's when president-elect obama first got his detailed briefing on the enhanced interrogation program. you know, by that time much of it, any reader of "the washington post" and new york times probably had about 85% of it, but that was his first official briefing. that's when, that's when he, that's when presidential candidates typically -- it's a crash course, i guess, is what i'm trying to

dodd-frank as governor romney has suggested. we ought to repeal dodd-frank and reprays it with those things that are necessary. and i'm afraid that there is very little in this act that is necessary because the financial crisis also in my view was not caused by a lack of regulation. there was plenty of power in the bank regulators to regulate the economy, regulate the way the banks operated and the act actually doesn't give them much more power except to say you must now do this much more stringently. so from my perspective we ought to, we ought to repeal the act, replace it with those things that seem sensible. there should probably be a commission of some kind that takes over the actions of the consumer financial protection bureau but not the single administrator idea that was developed and insulating that person from other kinds of controls by the president or by congress. all those things could go back into a statute but at this point it's probably better for our economy and the growth of the economy to repeal the act. thank you. [applause] >> good morning. i too am here and happ

's not right that people like mitt romney who is worth hundreds of millions of dollars a year peace 30 or 14% and effective tax rates while small business people and teachers and firefighters' pay much more. with a balanced approach we can meet this challenge. >> moderator: however, talk about taxes and spending. wilson: this is one of the area's congressman heinrich and i disagree. he is holding the entire staff hostage for a tax increase on the first of january because he wants to increase taxes on the upper brackets. half of the tax returns in those upper brackets are small businesses, the engines of economic growth in america. currency and young did a study last summer and looked at what would be the impact of adjusting taxes the way congressmen heinrich wants to do and we would lose another 4,300 jobs here in new mexico. i think what we need to do is extend all of the tax rates that we have now and go through a yearlong process of the tax simplification. takeout almost all of the exemptions and special provisions, lower the rates and broaden the base and give ourselves a tax code that i
